HON. THOMAS PITTS, 
pKtident Michigin Society S. A. R. 



HON. THOMAS PITTS. 

DETROIT, MICH. 

Hon. Thomas Pitts, President of the Michigan Society, Sons of the 
American Revolution, a Vice-President General of the National Society 
of the same order in 1901, and an Honorary Member of the Society of 
the Cincinnati, etc., etc., etc., was born in Detroit, Mich., October 11, 1841, 
and springs from an old Puritan family of New England of the same 
stock as the historic English family of Pitt. John Pitts, the founder of 
the family in America, was a son of Baruth Pitts, Mayor of Lyme Regis, 
England. Bom in England in 1668, he settled in Boston in 1694, and 
becoming a merchant acquired wealth and rose to prominence and official 
position. His son, James Pitts, the patriot, born in Boston in 1712, 
graduated at Harvard College in 1731, and married Elizabeth Bowdoin, 
sister of Governor James Bowdoin of Massachusetts and a granddaughter 
of Dr. Pierre Baudouine, a Huguenot refugee from Rochelle after the 
revocation of the Edict of Nantes, who settled at Portland in 1687, and 
subsequently in Boston. 

Although chosen a member of the King's Council in 1766, James Pitts 
remained loyal to the interests of the people. He had the confidence of 
Franklin and was the friend and associate of Adams, Hancock, Bowdoin, 
Winthrop, Otis, Dexter and other pronounced advocates of the popular 
rights; and at his hospitable home in Howard Street, Boston, assisted by 
his beautiful and accomplished wife and stalwart sons, he welcomed, coun- 
selled and directed the patriotic spirits who inaugurated and carried 
forward the cause of independence. In the "Boston Tea Party" were his 
three sons — ^John, Samuel and Lendall. The last named, in command of 
one of the boats, displayed rare judgment and courage. Samuel joined 
the Sons of Liberty and was an officer in the Hancock Cadets. John, as 
a Member of the Committee on Correspondence, defended and protected 
the patriots. An authentic account and portraits of James Pitts and his 
sons may be found in Vol. I. of this Register, pages 562-3-4; and also in 
an interesting little volume from the pen of the late Hon. Daniel Goodwin 
of Chicago, entitled: "Life and Services of James Pitts and His Sons 
in the Revolution," published in 18 — . 

Thomas Pitts was named for his grandfather. Major Thomas Pitts, 
U.S.A., who was commissioned in the artillery by President Jefferson and 
served through the War of 1812-15, receiving his last commission from 
President Madison, for gallantry. He married Elizabeth Montfort, a 
native of France and member of a noble family. Their son, Samuel, 
father of the subject of this sketch, was born at Fort Preble, Portland 
Harbor. Educated at Harvard, he graduated in 1830, and immediately 
proceeded to Detroit, walking most of the way. He was one of the 
pioneers of Michigan. After practicing law a number of years, he 



engaged in the manufacture of lumber with marked success. He pos- 
sessed unusual talents and was a splendid specimen of physical manhood. 
His wife, bom Sarah Merrill, was a great-great-granddaughter of Judge 
Gamaliel Bradford^-one of the most prominent men of his time, and a 
lineal descendant of Governor William Bradford of the Mayflower and 
Governor John Winslow. 

Upon completing his studies at Andover Academy, Mr. Pitts engaged 
in business with his father. His life for forty years past has been that 
of a cultured man of affairs. He has traveled extensively, more especially 
in Europe, where his children were educated and where he himself spent 
nearly ten years. 

Although deeply interested in public affairs, he has never been a candi- 
date for political honors; but he has served the State as a member of the 
Board of Trustees of the Asylum for the Insane at Pontiac, and the city 
as a Trustee of the Detroit Museum of Art. He is a member of many 
clubs, societies and military and patriotic orders, an Honorary Member of 
the Detroit Post, G. A. R., including besides those mentioned at page 564, 
Vol. I. of this work, the Society of Colonial Governors; and he enjoys 
the exceptional distinction of Honorary Membership in the Society of the 
Cincinnati and has qualified for hereditary membership of this Order. In 
1901 he was elected a Vice-President General of the National Society, 
Sons of the American Revolution; and in 1903 he was chosen President 
of the Michigan Society. His interest in the patriotic orders is marked, a 
recent evidence of this being the donation of copies of the National 
Register, Sons of the American Revolution, to all the public libraries in 
Michigan and the presentation of an equal number of copies to other 
institutions and to personal friends. 

Mr. Pitts possesses cultured literary and artistic tastes. He owns a fine 
library and many pictures, among the latter being included portraits in 
oil, by contemporary artists, of all his ancestors back to the foundation of 
the family in America. 

In 1871 Mr. Pitts married Miss Louise Strong, daughter of Mr. H. 
Norton Strong of Detroit. Their children are a son— Lendall, a graduate 
of Harvard University (1897), an accomplished linguist and an artist of 
exceptional promise, who resides in Paris; and a daughter — Helen Strong, 
the wife of Mr. Arthur M. Parker of Detroit. 



This book is published in order that the State Societies 
whose limited membership prevents them from issuing a State 
Register may have a representation before the American public 
equal to those State Societies having a more numerous membership. 

It is hoped that the wide distribution of this work will be 
the means of inducing its readers to become members of the Society 
which it represents. 

While it is in no wise a complete history of the Society or its 
aims, it does contain the entire list of the membership of the 
National Society to December 31, 1901, including deceased 
members, with their line of descent from their Revolutionary 
ancestors. This alone will make the work a valuable one, and 
it will be used as a standard book of reference for many years 
to come.

WALTER SETH LOGAN. 

Fkbsident General National Sooety S. A. R. 

WALTER SETH LOGAN, son of Seth Savage and Abigail Serene Hollis- 
ter Logan, was born April 15th, 1847, kt Washington, Litchfield County, 
Connecticut Mr. Logan is connected, directly or indirectly, with all the 
prominent early families of Connecticut, as these families frequently intermarried. 

John Logan, the founder of the Washington family, was descended from a long line 
of Scotch barons, deriving their name, Celtic in origin, from the ancestral home, Logan, 
in Ayrshire. He came from the North of Ireland with the Gordons, Kassons, Keig- 
wins, Parkes, Wylies, and other Scotch Presbyterians, under the leadership of the 
Reverend Samuel Dorrance, a graduate of the University of Glasgow. Their party, 
after experiencing a great many unusual difficulties, came from Marblehead Harbor 
and Boston to Connecticut, asd, buying up the Volunteer grants at Voluntown, 
formed the nucleus of the Presbyterian Church at Ekonk Hill. 

Matthew Logan, Jr., the grandson of this John Logan, born at Washington, mar- 
ried Laura Sanford, daughter of Sergeant Strong Sanford, a soldier of the Revolu- 
tion and the son of a soldier of the Revolution, as well as of the Colonial Wars, 
Elihu Sanford. 

The name of Seth Savage Logan, the father of the subject of this sketch, is 
traced back to Seth Grant, of Hartford. His wife, Abigail Serene HoUister, is 
descended from several Revolutionary heroes, being the daughter of, Sherman Hollis- 
ter, son of Captain Gideon Hollister (4), the son of Captain Gideon (3), son of 
Captain Stephen (2), son of Lieutenant John (i) Hollister, Sherman HoUister's 
wife being Patty Nettleton, with two descents from the Baldwin family of Old Mil- 
ford, and one each from Burwell, Whitmore, etc. 

Mr. Logan also has double descent from the Rev. Thomas Hooker, the fighting 
preacher, founder of Hartford, Connecticut, and Rev. Roger Newton, of Farmington. 
Through Joanna Treat, the wife of Lieut. John Hollister, Mr. Logan is descended 
from Richard Treat, one of the original settlers of Wethersfield, Connecticut, who 
represented that town in the first General Court of 1637, and in the Royal Charter of 
Charles H. was named as one of the patentees. He is also descended through Rebecca 
Sherman, the wife of Captain Gideon Hollister, Sr., from the. Sherman family, of 
which Roger Sherman, one of the Signers of .the Declaration of Independence, and 
General and Senator Sherman were distinguished members. 

Walter Seth Logan was prepared for college in the Suffield Institute and the Fort 
Edward Collegiate Institute. He was graduated from Yale in 1870, from Harvard 
Law School in 1871, and Columbia Law School in 1872, in which year he was 
admitted to the New York Bar. Entering the law office of James C. Carter, he 
became the assistant of Mr. Carter and Charles O'Conor in the famous Jumel will 
case, thus beginning under the most favorable auspices a career as a lawyer that has 
been full of successes and honors. He has been prominent in Mexican as well as in 
State and National legal disputations, and is readily recognized as one of the fore- 
most men in his profession. 

In addition to his professional labors he has found time to devote to literary 
work on economic, historical and other popular subjects. Among his essays and

addresses are "The Siege of Cuautla, the Bunker Hill of Mexico," "An Argument- 
for an Eight-Hour Law/' "Nationalism/' "Peonage in Mexico/' "A Mexican Law 
Suit/' "Saxon and Latin Courts/* "A Permanent International Tribunal/' "Needed 
Modifications of the Patent Laws/' "The Limitation of Inheritances/' and "A More 
Socialistic State." 

Mr. Logan has been a leading spirit in the several reform movements of New 
York City, and was Chairman of the Executive Committee of the Ballot Reform. 
Association of New York State in 1887-1889, whose work has resulted in the present 
improved condition of our baUot system, greatly -nedvcihg the frauds so prevalent 
under the old system. An ex-president of the New York State Bar Association, 
he is a prominent member of the American Bar Association, chairman of one of the* 
most important committees, and at present a vice-president of the association. A 
member of the Manhattan, Democratic, New York Yacht and many other chibs and' 
organizations, legal, social and literary, and a liberal patron, of the arts and sciences, 
he has also been active in the vanous patriotic societies of the land, participating^* 
in many of their celebrations as an orator. A member of the Society of the Colonial 
Wars, of the Founders and Patriots, and President of the Em^Mre State Society of 
the Sons of the American Revolution, he counts as one of the greatest honors he. 
has received his recent election as President General of the National Society. 

He was married in 1875 to Eliza Preston Kenyon, of Brook]3m, New York. Thcf 
have three children, Hollistcr (Yale, 1900 ; Columbia Law School, 1902) ; Jancttei

HISTORY 



or THE 



NATIONAL SOCIETY Or THE SONS OE 
THE AMERICAN REVOLUTION. 



THE SOaETy OF THE SONS OF THE AMERICAN REVOLUTION 
is a patriotic or^iaoixation composed of the lineal descendants of those 
colonists who took part, on the American side, in the Revolutionary War 
against the British. Its purposes are to perpetuate the memory and spirit of the 
men who achieved American Independente, by the encouragement of historical 
res e arch in refeition to the Revolution, and the publication of its results; the 
preservation of docamenU and relics, and of the records of individual services 
of Refotutio nary soldiers and patriots, and the promotion of celebrations of all 
patriotie asntvcrsaries; to carry oat the iniunctions of Washington in his farewell 
address fo die Assericaa people 'to pfomo te , as an object of primary importance,. 
i nstitutio a a for die diffusion of knowledge,' thus devdoping an enlightened public 
spimon, and affording to yomg and old such advaittages as shall develop in them 
^ langcsC capacity lor perfonning the duties of American citizens; to cherish» 
natntain, and csAead the institiidons of American freedom; to foster true patriot- 
ism and love of country, and to aid in securing lor all mankind the blessings of 
Bberty. 

McndieniiHp m dK Society is limited to fineal adult male desoendaats of ances- 
tors who participated in the Revolutionary War against the British, either in a. 
militafy, saval or civS capacity. 

There is a Nadonal Society, and within it, and under its direction and control^ 
are the various Stale Societies. The National Society came into existence only 
after a immbe r of State Societies had been organized. It is their creature. As 
the original States existed before our Federal Union was formed, so the various 
State Sodeties came into being before the lormatiott of the National Society. It 
grew out of their desitv for a more perfect union. 

The Sons of Revdfaitiotiafy Sires was the first of the modern State patriotic 
Societies. It was fanned and instituted October stai, 1875, at San Francisco, CaL» 
three thousand miles away from the scenes of the struggles for American Inde- 
pendence; Composed exclusively of lineal descendants from heroes and states-

men of the American Revolution, its constitution provided for "auxiliary" branches, 
coequal Societies, and a national representative body. Copies of this constitution 
were sent out all over the United States, together with circulars and bulletins 
of its proceedings. This California Society was the pioneer of the modem hereditary, 
patriotic Society, and its influences led to the formation of all of them. 

Some of these constitutions, with the circulars and bulletins of the California 
Society, were sent, year by year, to residents of New York City. The California 
movement excited interest in the East, but California was a long way off, and h&d 
never been even heard of at the time of the American Revolution, and there were 
those who felt that Societies of this class should not be formed in the East as the 
child of a Society in California. 

In 1883, however, a few men in New York City met and organized an inde* 
pendent Society there, called "Sons of the Revolution." Thus the seed planted 
by California had sprouted at last in the metropolis. The new Society was small in 
membership, and at first intended to be purely local, but finally it also adopted 
a constitution providing that Societies might be formed in other States, each of 
which should be an "auxiliary" branch. That expression, "auxiliary branch," 
adopted from the California Society's Constitution, was an error of judgment, now 
at last confessed, but long persisted in. It was that word "auxiliary," and that 
alone, which led to the creation of two sets of Societies. A Society of Sons of the 
Revolution was organised in Philadelphia in 1888, although refusing to be "aux- 
iliary" to New York. 

This movement of 1883 awoke fresh interest in the subject of patriotic Societies 
in the East, but the word "auxiliary" prevented gentlemen in New England and 
others of the original thirteen States, from organizing Societies of their own. 
Massachusetts, Connecticut, and other States each supplied far more men for the 
American Revolution than New York. A natural pride prevented those States 
from being "auxiliary" to New York. For about five years, therefore, these two 
Societies in the East and the pioneer Society in California were all there were of 
these modern Societies. 

In 1888 a few New Jersey members of the New York Society of the Sons of the 
Revolution proposed to form a New Jersey Society. The New York Sons told 
them they would be recognized as an "auxiliary" Society, and not otherwise, and, 
■further, that they had better join either the New York or Philadelphia Society any- 
how, and not have one of their own. These patriotic and enterprising Jerseymen 
then went to work. In the spring of 1889 they organized, by correspondence and 
personal visits, State Societies of Sons of the Revolution in New Hampshire, 
Vermont, New Jersey, Delaware, Maryland, Ohio, Indiana, Illinois, West Virginia, 
Arkansas, South Carolina, Kentucky and Tennessee. The object was to organize 
a National Society — mark the name — of Sons of the Revolution, in which each 
State Society should be a coequal sister organization, and none of them "aux- 
iliary" to any other. They never dreamed of forming a new organization. Their 
whole purpose was to bring sufficient influence to bear to induce New York to repeal 
the "auxiliary" article in her constitution. 

If, when the New Yorkers heard of this movement, they had promptly met 
and repealed the "auxiliary" article, there never would have been two sets of 
Societies. No one wanted two sets of Societies; no one thought of it. But what 
did the New Yorkers do? They actually met and adopted a new constitution, in 
which the "auxiliary" article was made more explicit, and more binding, thus 
ignoring the patriotic sentiment and natural pride of every sister State, and declar- 
ing war upon any movement having for its object the equality of the different 
State Societies. By making all the other States "auxiliary" to New York, the 
annual election of national officers would have to be held in New York, and would 
always have been controlled by the local members. 

A National Convention was called, to which every existing Society was invited, 

10 



natfoiuU Vefitotet Sons of tbe Bmerfcan Vciwlutfotu 

and delegates attended from thirteen out of the twenty, including the' original one 
in California, with persons present from New York and Pennsylvania. The con- 
vention assembled in the historic "Long Room" of Fraunce's Tavern, where Wash- 
ington, on the 3d day of December, 1783, had said farewell to his brother offi- 
cers of the Revolutionary Army. 

Mr. McDowell, of New Jersey, called the meeting to order. After a permanent 
organization had been cflFected by the election of Mr. McDowell as chairman, and 
Lieutenant James C. Cresap, United States Navy, as secretary, remarks were 
made by several gentlemen present, all in favor of the organization of a National 
Society. Various influences and considerations suggested the necessity of such 
an organization to those present To be sure, the various State Societies had come 
into existence for patriotic purposes. But these patriotic objects could be best 
furthered and carried out under a national organization. The ancestors, whose 
deeds were to be commemorated, did not belong to any special State or section of 
the country, but were claimed by the nation as a whole. A Q>ngress, made up of 
delegates from all the Colonies, had drafted and promulgated the Declaration of 
Independence; an army composed of patriots from all the Colonies had carried 
out the sentiments of that Declaration and achieved American Independence, and a 
union of all the American Colonies, under a central government, had preserved the 
rights so secured. A motion was made to proceed with the organization of a 
National Society, and that a committee be appointed on constitution and by-laws» 
and to nominate permanent officers to consist of one delegate from each State. 
While this motion was being debated, the Pennsylvania delegates took the floor 
and urged that all the Societies should become "auxiliary" to New York. This 
was debated for a long time. Pennsylvania was asked if her Society was "auxiliary" 
to New York. She replied "No." The convention then refused point blank to agree 
to the "auxiliary" relation to New York. Not one State in that whole convention 
would agree to that proposition. The New Yorkers refused, for their part, to recog- 
nize the others as "sister" Societies, and both Pennsylvania and New York took 
no further part in the proceedings. The question, What shall be done? then arose. 
The convention was there, in actual session, acting in behalf of eighteen States^ 
including the original Society in California. The delegates felt deeply the injustice 
of an attempt to impose an un-American style of organization upon a Society which 
should be pre-eminently American in all its sentiments, objects, and framework, and 
especially to try to control, in this manner, a movement which New York had not 
even originated. After discussion, before adjournment, the convention organized 
as a National Society, taking the name of Sons of the American Revolution. Our 
national organization thus began its existence with eighteen State Societies, while 
the Sons of the Revolution had only two; and every one in the eighteen soon 
thereafter adopted the title Sons of the American Revolution. 

Now, after twelve years, the members of the National Society may well contem- 
plate its progress with pride. It is composed of men of various political opinions; 
men in army and navy life, men eminent as statesmen, jurists, merchants, bankers, 
preachers, and in every honorable walk of life ; all of the men who take pride in 
their descent from those Revolutionary sires who, by the sacrifice of energy, 
wealth, and even life itself, founded this great Republic. Among its distinguished 
members are our late President, William McKinley; the President of the United 
States, Theo. Roosevelt; the Commanding General of the Army, Nelson A. Miles; 
the Admiral of the Navy, George Dewey; Associate Justice of the United States 
Supreme Court, David J. Brewer; the United States Ambassador to France, 
Horace Porter; the late United States Ambassador to Spain, Stewart L. Woodford; 
ex- Vice-president, Levi P. Morton; United States Senators, Chauncey M. Depew, 
John W. Daniels, Marcus A. Hanna, Henry C. Lodge, Orville H. Piatt, and Redfield 
Proctor. Also, Generals Simon B. Buckner, Frederick D. Grant, A. W. Greeley,

The phenomenal growth and progress of the Society has been due to the fact 
tfiat at the very beginning it was organized upon the broad American principle 
of one National Society, divided into coequal sister and State Societies, and the 
latter subdivided, to some extent, into local branches or chapters; and to the fur- 
ther fact that the Society was the only one that admitted no man to membership 
unless he was a lineal descendant of a patriot of the American Revoltition. The 
wisdom of these provisions has been so apparent that the Sons of the Revolution 
liave, since the events of r88g, repealed the "auxiliary" article in their constitution, 
and still later have abolished their long-cherished provision for admitting collat- 
eral descendants. Because of the strict requirements for membership, and spirit 
of our members, an exceedingly large number of men of high social position and 
national reputation have joined our Society in all parts of the country. Our appli- 
cation blank has been adopted by all the different Societies of Sons and Daugh- 
ters of the Revolution. 



MOVEMENTS TOWARD UNION. 



Almost immediately after the adjournment of the first National Convention, 
the board of managers of the Sons of the American Revolution took active meas- 
Tires looking to a union of the New York and Pennsylvania Societies of the Sons of 
the Revolution with our National Society. Committees were appointed, headed by 
John Lee Carroll of the Sons of the Revolution, and President General Horace 
Porter of the Sons of the American Revolution; a basis of union was agreed 
upon, and the conference committee's report of December 22, 1892, was unani- 
mously signed by every member of that committee. In accordance with that report, 
a joint meeting was held on February 16, 1893, in the city of New York, at which 
it was expected that the union of the two Societies would be perfected. To the 

12 



IMIraal Segtetcr Sow of tbe JUncdom Vevoltitfoik 

•surprise of the Sons of the American Revolution, at the last moment the Sons of 
the Revolution refused to accept the report, and the plan of union failed. 

The failure of the congresses of 1893 to bring about a union did not, however, 
put an end to the movement. The cordial relations existing between individual 
members and individual State Societies of the two general Societies gave evi- 
dence of the hearty sentiment still existing in favor of an amalgamation^ and the 
belief entertained by the Sons of the American Revolution that the action of the 
Sons of the Revolution, on February 16, 1893, did not represent the prevailing 
sentiment of that Society, led them to make another attempt at a union. At a 
meeting of the Sons of the Revolution, held in the city of Savannah, on the 20th 
of April, 1896, a resolution was passed inviting a conference for the purpose of 
effecting a union. 

This action of the General Society of the Sons of the Revolution was followed by 
tlie Congress of the National Society of the Sons of the American Revolution, at its 
meeting in the city of Richmond, April 30^ i9p6, which passed a resolution accept- 
ing the invitation of the Sons of the Revolution to this conference. The action 
of the two congresses in 1896 resulted in a correspondence conducted by the 
general officers of both Societies, but to no purpose, and the scheme for union 
was again postponed. 

Matters remained in statu quo until April 19, 1897, when the Genera! Society, 
Sons of the Revolution, at its meeting in Philadelphia, adopted resolutions appoint- 
in£^ a committee of five to act with a like committee, which they requested should 
be appointed by the National Society of the Sons of the American Revolution. 
Tlie resolutions provided that **these two committees of five each shall constitute 
together the above-named joint committee of conference on basis of utrion, which 
sbaU consider the constitution and plan of union of 1893, and afl proposed changes 
thereto, and come to an agreement, if possible, respecting a new general consti- 
tution, and a plan of union between the Societies. Eacfr constituent commfttee of 
five shalT report to its own general assembly the results of the conference, together 
with its own recommendations respecting them.** They provided for an adjotiriied 
meeting of their assembly, to be held in Cincinnatf, Ohio, October 12, tBgip, 
and requested the National Society of the Sons of the American Revolution to 
appoint a similar committee, and to hold a mee ting of its con gre ss in Cincinnati, 
Ohio, on October 12, ^897, at which time the reports of the joint committee should 
be received by the respective bodies. A committee was accordingly appointed by 
the Natiooat Society of the Sons of the American Revolution, and the joint com- 
mittee, thus appointed, worked assiduously dtTrrng the next few months, and when 
the two national bodies met in different rooms in the Grand Hotel in Cincinnati. 
October 12, 1897, the constituent committees presented to their respective national 
bodies and recommended a plan for union and a form of constitution for the new 
Society, which was signed by all the members of the committee representing the 
Sons of the American Revohition, and by four of the five members of the com- 
mittee representing the Sons of the Revolution. The convention of the Sons of the 
American RevoTution, after a full discussion of the p¥an, adopted it by a rising 
and unanimous vote at their morning session. The Sons of the Revohition, after 
a vigorous discussion, which lasted all day, adopted the plan by a close vote, six of 
the general officers voting **no." 

The plan adopted provided that it should be submitted to the various State 
Societies for approval, and should go into effect when adopted by a majority of 
the Societies of each organization. Thirty-two of the State Societies of the Sons of 
the American Revolution voted in'fevor of ratHying the plan. One rejected it; 
one did not take any action at all, and no reports were received from four. The 
Sons of the Revolution rejected the plan by the foflowing vote: Seventeen against 
union, six in favor of it, and two not voting. Accordingly, the proposed tmion 
failed for the third time to become effective.

GROWTH AND ACCOMPLISHMENTS. 

The history of the Sons of the American Revolution as a National Body begins 
with the convention held at Fraunces' Tavern, in New York City, on April 30, 
1889. By the constitution then adopted the National Society was to be made up of 
the presidents of the State Societies and delegates elected by such Societies. 



CoNGSSSS OP 1890.— The first year of the Society's organization numerous meet- 
ings of the board of managers were held, and the work of instituting State Socie- 
ties was taken up and prosecuted with such vigor that at the meeting of the first 
congress at Louisville, Ky., April jo, 1890, ten new State Societies had been organ- 
ized, making a total of twenty-eight, with a membership of twenty-five hundred. 
The constitution was revised, and after being engrossed, was signed by all the del- 
egates present. The session of this congress closed with a banquet, in honor of the 
delegates, present, given by the Kentucky Society, and presided over by Governor 
Buckner. 

Congress of 1891. — On the 30th day of April, 1891, the second annual congress 
of the National Society was held at Hartford, Conn. The attendance was largfe, 
and the delegates were full of enthusiasm. Governor Buckley welcomed the dele- 
gates at the opening of the congress. Full and interesting reports were received 
from the State Societies and from the officers of the National Society. The ques- 
tion of unity with the Sons of the Revolution was considered, and such steps taken 
as led eventually to a conference of committees of both Societies looking to a union. 
At the close of the congress the Connecticut Society entertained the delegates with 
an elaborate banquet, at which many eloquent and patriotic addresses were made. 

Congress of 1892. — ^The third annual congress met on April 30, 1892, in the Gov- 
ernor's room in the City Hall in New York City. The use of this room was secured 
to the Society by special permission of the city authorities ; it was decorated appro- 
priately for the occasion. Eighty-nine delegates were present, representing twenty- 
two States. The report showed thirty State Societies, with a membership aggre> 
gating three thousand five hundred and three. The reports of the officers and of 
the State Societies showed that the order was in a prosperous condition, and that 
its influence was not only increasing, but that its methods were becoming better 
understood, and its records and those of its members were being perfected to a de- 
gree scarcely to have been expected when it was organized. The usual amount of 
routine business was transacted, and upon the adjournment of the convention a 
banquet was served at Delmonico's by the Empire State Society, at which the Hon- 
orable Chauncey M. Depew acted as toast-master. 

Congress and Conclave of 1893.— Early in 1893 the National Society received 
an invitation from Illinois State Society to hold its annual congress and the first 
Triennial Conclave of the general membership at Chicago, on June i6th and 17th 
of that year. In order that the constitution should not be violated, the board of 
managers, on April 30th, held a pro forma session in New York City, at the office 
of General Horace Porter, Pres. Gen., and then adjourned to meet at Chicago on 
the i6th day of June. At this pro forma session certain constitutional amend- 
ments were proposed and referred to the special committee on revision of the con- 
stitution, appointed in 1892.

On the i6th day of June, 1893, the adjourned session of the congress met in the 
Art Institute in the city of Chicago. There were present eighty-five members and 
a large number of compatriots from Illinois and other State Societies, as well as 
a number of Daughters of the American Kevolution. Twenty-nine State Societies 
were represented. The reports of the various officers showed that the Society was 
in a prosperous condition, and that its membership had increased to four thousand 
one hundred. After the election of officers for the ensuing year, the congress ad- 
journed to become the guests of the Illinois Society at a banquet given at the Union 
League Qub at Chicago, at which the Honorable Henry M. Shepard, President 
of the Illinois Society, presided and welcomed the congress to Chicago. Various 
other toasts were responded to by prominent members of the Society. 

FntST Mehqsial Conclave. — On the following day a thousand or more of Sons 
and Daughters of the American Revolution assembled at the Music Hall on 
the Exposition Grounds to celebrate the anniversary of the Battle of Bunker Hill. 
The members of the congress were seated on the platform. Gen. Horace Porter 
presided and delivered the opening address, after which addresses were made by 
Hon. Chauncey M. Depew, of New York, and William Wirt Henry, of Virginia. 
Adjournment was then had to the Casino for lunch. In the afternoon a spirited 
meeting was held by the Daughters of the American Revolution in the Woman's 
Building. At this meeting addresses were made by Gen. Porter, Hon. Henry M. 
Shepard, and also by several of the more prominent Daughters of the American 
Revolution, after which refreshments were served and the meeting adjourned. 

CbNGKEss OF 1894. — The fifth annual congress of the Society convened in the 
city of Washington on the 30th day of April, 1894. Twenty-seven State Societies 
were represented. The report of the registrar-general showed that the Societies 
had been organized in Iowa and Pennsylvania during the year, and that the mem- 
bership of the Society had increased to four thousand five hundred and ninety-two. 
During the noon recess the delegates marched in a body to the White House, where 
they were received by President Qeveland in the East Room, each delegate being 
presented to the President by General Porter. In the evening the District of Colum- 
bia Society tendered a reception to the delegates and their ladies and others, in the 
parlors of the Arlington Hotel. General J. C. Breckinridge, President of the District 
of Columbia Society, welcomed the guests, and during the evening addresses were 
made by General Porter, Judge Whitehead, of New Jersey; Senator Hill, of Con- 
necticut; Judge Good, of Virginia; Mr. Weeks, of Pennsylvania, and others. 

Congress of 1895. — ^The sixth annual congress met in the old South Meeting- 
house, in the city of Boston, on May i, 1895. 

Twelve hundred new members had been added to the rolls. A committee on 
National Legislation was appointed to take charge of all business, both of the 
National and State Societies, requiring action in the United States Congress. It 
was also resolved to try to secure the publication in book form, by Congress, of the 
records of service, which were then being indexed at Washington, and also to re- 
quest the various State Societies to take steps for the general observation of Flag 
Day, June 14th, in the several cities and municipalities within their respective juris- 
dictions. 

In the evening the members of the congress were the guests of the Massachu- 
setts Society at the Hotel Vendome. After a reception in the parlors of the hotel, 
two hundred and fifty Sons of the American Revolution marched to the dining-hall

Hotel, in New York City, April 30 and May i, 1900. President-General Murphy 
presided. The reports of the various general officers were read, from which it 
appeared that the past year had been a generally prosperous one with all of the 
State Societies. A steady gain in membership had been made, the total active mem- 
bership being nine thousand six hundred and seventy-one. Several amendments 
to the constitution were adopted. A banner for the Society was provided for. In

vania, on April 30 and May i, 1901. President-General Breckinridge presided. J

enjoyed great prosperity during the year, and that they had accomplished much 
good, patriotic work. The registrar-general's report showed that the total active

thirty-nine State Societies; that during the year Maryland had printed a large 
quarto volume of muster rolls, and that some lists had been published by South 

16 



national Vtegteter SOI10 ot tbe Bmerican Kevoiuttom 

Carolina. The National Flag Committee reported that they had secured the 
passage in six States of laws prc^venting the desecration of the national flag by 
using it for advertising purposes, and that such laws now existed in eighteen , 
States. 

The convention also determined to recommend that the Congress of the United 
States cause to be erected in Washington, D. C, such a memorial to the heroes 
of the Revolution as would give fitting recognition to the deeds of valor and self- 
sacrifice which characterized the early struggles of our ancestors to achieve inde- 
pendence and establish our republic. A resolution was also adopted providing 
that the board of managers shall proceed with the publication of the register without 
any expense to the National Society. 

During the afternoon of May i, igoi, the literary exercises were held in Carnegie 
Music Hall, at which addresses were delivered by prominent members. In the 
evening the delegates were the guests of the Pennsylvania Society at a banquet gfiven 
in their honor in the ball-room of the Hotel Schenley. 

Within the compass of this work it is possible to give but a brief account of the 
proceedings of the annual congresses of the Society. What the Society has accom- 
plished can best be shown by the following extract from the address of President- 
General Horace Porter, at the annual congress in Boston, May i, 1895: 

"This Society has made so much progress throughout its existence that you may 
pardon me for alluding to some of the salient objects which have been accom- 
plished. 

'This Society secured from Congress a law under which the records of service 
in the Revolution in the Executive Departments in Washington have been indexed 
and placed in a fireproof building in the Smithsonian Institute. That is the very 
basis upon which we found the membership of this Society, the thorough search 
of these records giving the assurance that the credentials are ample for every 
compatriot that enters this organization. 

"It has secured from Congress a law authorizing officers of the regular army 
and navy, who are members, to wear the badge of this Society on ceremonial 
occasions. That has a deeper significance than you may suppose. In France and 
other European countries the laws do not authorize any one to wear publicly any 
decoration or badge unless it is in some way authorized by the person's government, 
and we think that under this law this Society will be the only one entitled to wear 
publicly its badge. 

"Some time ago we secured from the New Hampshire Legislature the con- 
struction and public dedication of the same statue of that grand old hero, General 
John Stark. 

''It was this Society which originated the beautiful custom of Flag Day, setting 
aside June 14 as the anniversary of the adoption of the Stars and Stripes as our 
national ensign for such celebrations. 

"It obtained from the New York Legislature the passage of a law forbidding 
the display of foreign flags upon public buildings unless the official representatives 
of a foreign power are guests of a city or the State ; andtthe Governor, who promptly 
signed that law, is a member of this order. 

"Its members promoted the construction and took the place of honor in the 
dedication of the great monument to the heroes of Bennington. 

"In 1893 it took the most prominent part in the celebration of the laying of the 
cornerstone of the National Capitol, September 18, 1893, when William Wirt Henry, 
the grandson of the great Patrick Henry, was selected from this Society as the 
orator of the day. 

"It has stimulated interest in the American Revolution by more than two hun- 
dred public celebrations of anniversaries of important events. 

"It has preserved, as a permanent historical monument, the headquarters of 
Jonathan Trumbull, old brother Jonathan, in Connecticut. 

17 



national Vteatotet SOI10 ot tbe Bmetican Veirabittoiu 

"It has initiated the movement, of which we must give the entire credit to otir 
honored Massachusetts Society, of the i^lan of marking the graves of the patriots 
of the American Revolution with bronze and iron markers. 

"It has advocated the passage of a law by Congress forbidding the desecration 
of the national flag for advertising purposes, and has promoted the general display 
of flags on public schools. 

"It has promoted historical research, by offering to each of a large number of 
American colleges, for annual competition by the students, a large and handsome 
silver medal for the best essay upon 'The Principles Fought For in the War of tbe 
American Revolution'; also to schools a silver medal and a bronze medal to certain 
scholars. 

"It has saved, by means of a law that has been passed by the New York Les^is- 
lature, from desecration, the old historic building, known as City Hall, in Meiv 
York City. 

"It has built an expensive monument at Dobbs' Ferry, to commemorate the 
spot where Washington and Rochambeau planned the Yorktown campaign. 

"It has presented national flags, portraits of Washington and prize medals to 
large numbers of schools and academies in different parts of the country. 

"It has contributed, by the energetic efforts of its members, to the appointment 
of April 19 as Patriots' Day in Massachusetts, in the place of the old Fast Day. 

"It has secured appropriations from the Legislature of Maryland and private 
individuals for a splendid monument in Baltimore, to the men of the American 
Revolution. 

"These are only some of the steps which have been taken by this Society." 

From the various annual reports of the registrars-general, various other work / 

that the Society has accomplished appears. Through the Society's efforts the ' 

government has compiled from the musters and pay-rolls and records found in 
the various departments, and so indexed as to render them readily accessible, 
the records of nearly 350,000 Revolutionary soldiers. These records have been 
supplemented by copies of additional rolls in the possession of original States. 
It is proposed to print these as soon as the search for lost rolls is completed. 
This work has been done by the Record and Pension Office of the War Depart- 
ment, and that office will promptly and gladly give, upon application, the record 
of any individual soldier found there. 

State officials have discovered many most valuable records, supposed to be 
irretrievably lost In the New York State archives at Albany, original rolls have 
been discovered, containing many thousand names, which go to show that that 
colony furnished upward of 43,500 soldiers for service in the Revolution. The 
names of these soldiers have been printed in a volume issued by the State Comp- 
troller. Many rolls have been discovered in Maryland, and Massachusetts is, at 
the present time, publishing a record, in detail, of the service of each and every 
one of her Revolutionary soldiers. This Society's archives, which are in the 
registrar-general's office, are of very great genealogical importance. They contain 
over 12,000 application papers, filed since this Society was founded. In these 
papers are recorded the names of more than 50,000 children, grandchildren and 
great-grandchildren of more than 20,000 of the active participants in the Revolu- 
tionary War, from whom the members of this Society claim descent. Here, too, 
the deeds of those soldiers and patriots are told in a more complete and graphic 
manner than in the muster-rolls or pay-rolls. The result is that many whose deeds ( 

of bravery and daring were almost forgotten, now live in the active memory of | 

their descendants in this great American patriotic organization.

OBJECTS or SOCIETY. 

THE objects of this Society shall be . . . to carry out . . . the injunctions of 
Washington in his farewell address to the American People." — Article II. 
of the Constitution of the Empire State Society, Sons of the American Revo- 
iution. 

"The Unity of Government, which constitutes you one people, ... is a main 
pillar in the edifice of your real independence. . . . The name of American, which 
belongs to you in your national capacity, must always exalt the just pride of pa- 
triotism more than any appellation derived from local discriminations. ... In con- 
templating the causes which may disturb our Union, it occurs as matter of serious 
concern that any ground should have been furnished for characterizing parties by 

geographical discrimination — Northern and Southern, Atlantic and Western 

To the efficacy and permanency of your Union, a government for the whole is in- 
dispensable. . . . The basis of our political system is the right of the people to 
make and to alter their constitution of government; but the constitution which at 
any time exists, until changed by an explicit and authentic act of the whole people, 
is sacredly obligatory upon all. . . . Resist with care the spirit of innovation upon 
its principles. . . . Let me warn you in the most solemn manner against the baneful 
effects of the spirit of party. . . . The habits of thinking in a free country should 
inspire caution in those intrusted with its administration, to confine themselves 
within their respective constitutional spheres, avoiding in the exercise of the powers 
of one department to encroach upon another. ... If, in the opinion of the people, 
the distribution or modificaticvi of the constitutional powers be in any particular 
wrong, let it be corrected by an amendment in the way which the constitution des- 
igpiates; but let there be no change by usurpation. ... Of all the dispositions 
and habits which lead to political prosperity, religion and morality are indispensable 
supports. . . . Promote, as an object of primary importance, institutions for the 
general diffusion of knowledge. ... As a very important source of strength and 
security, cherish public credit . . . Observe good faith and justice towards all 
nations ; cultivate peace and harmony with all. . . . Inveterate antipathies against 
particular nations and passionate attachments for others should be excluded. . . . 
Against the insidious wiles of foreign influence, the jealousy of a free people ought 
to be constantly awake. . . . The great rule of conduct for us in regard to foreigfn 
nations is, in extending our commercial relations, to have with them as little political 
connection as possible. . . . Taking care always to keep ourselves, by suitable 
establishment, on a respectable defensive posture, we may safely trust to temporary 
alliances for extraordinary emergencies. . . . The duty of holding a neutral con- 
duct (in case of war between foreign nations) may be inferred from the obligation 
which justice and humanity impose on every nation, in cases in which it is free to 
act, to maintain inviolate the relations of peace and amity towards other nations." — 
Washington's Farewell Address to the American People. ,

A A\OVEAENT TOR UNION 

or THE 

TWO SOCIETIES. S. A. R. AND S. R. 



The committees of The Sons of the American Revolution and the Sons of the 
Revolution, who were appointed by their respective Societies to confer together upon 
the subject of union of the two Societies, beg leave to report jointly for the consider- 
ation of each Society the result of their labors. 

First: They were profoundly impressed by evidences of a universal sentiment 
favoring union reaching them from members of both National Societies, as well as 
with the cordiality and harmony inspiring the members of the Committees, who 
approached the difficult and delicate task assigned them with great deliberation and 
with a deep sense of responsibility. 

Second: The two Committees met, on the call of their respective Chairmen, in a 
joint conference on basis of Union, and after a careful consideration of the Consti- 
tution and Plan of Union of 1893, ^^^ proposed changes thereto, unanimously decided 
upon and do now recommend the adoption of the following Basis of Union : 



BASIS OF UNION. 

1. The members of the two National Societies unite in forming the National 
Society of the American Revolution by the adoption of the Constitution hereinafter 
following and the election of officers as provided therein, at a meeting to be held 
jointly in the city of Cincinnati, Ohio, October 12, 1897. 

2. The General Board of Managers shall designate the Colors, Seal and Insignia 
and direct a rule or rules for wearing Insignia and use of Colors.

In the construction of this article, the Volunteer Aides-de-Camp of General 
Officers in the Continental Service, who were dulv announced as such and who 
actually served in the field during a campaign, shall be comprehended as having per- 
formed qualifying service. 

No service of an ancestor shall be deemed as qualifjring service for membership in 
The SociETy of American Revolution where such ancestor, after assisting in the 
cause of American Independence, shall have subsequently either adhered to the enemy, 
or failed to maintain an honorable record throughout the War of the Revolution. 

No person shall be admitted unless he be eligible under one of the provisions of 
this article, nor unless he be of good moral character and be judged worthy of 
becoming a member. 

Section 2. That every member of the Society of the Sons of the Revolution and 
of The SoaETY of the Sons of the American Revolution in p^ood standing at 
the time of the adoption of this Constitution, who has been admitted to either of 
these Societies under their respective constitutions and the by-laws of their respective 
National Societies, shall be enrolled as a member of this Society ; subject, however, 
to the approval of the Joint Committee on Revision of Membership Rolls. 

Section 3. Applications for membership shall be made to any State Society, in 
duplicate, upon blank forms prescribed by the General Board of Managers, and shall 
in each case set forth the name, occupation and residence of the applicant, his line of 
descent, and the name, residence, and service of his ancestor or ancestors in the 
Revolution, from whom he derives eligibility. The applicant shall make oath or 
affirmation that the statements of his application are true, to the best of his knowl- 
edge and belief. Upon the approval of an application by the State Society, to which 
it is made, one c(H>y shall be transmitted to the Registrar-General of the National 
Society* who shall examine the same and upon approval notify the Secretary of the 
State Society. If satisfied that the application is not properly made out, he shall 
return it for correction. No election of a new member shall be valid, unless his 
eligibility shall be approved by the Registrar-General. 

ARTICLE IV. 
national and state societies. 

Section i. The National Societies shall embrace all the members of the State 
Societies now existing, or which may hereafter be established under this Constitution. 

Section 2. Whenever in any State or Territory, in which a State Society does 
not exist, or in which a State Society has become inactive or failed for two years to 
pay its annual dues to the National society, fifteen or more persons duly qualified for 
membership in this Society may associate themselves as a State Society of the 
[War for American Independence*] American Revolution, and organize in accord- 
ance with this Constitution ; they may be admitted by the General Board of Managers 

of the National Society as The Society of the American Revolution, and shall 

thereafter have exclusive local jurisdiction in the State or Territory, or in the District 
in which they are organized, subject to the provisions of this Constitution; but this 
provision shall not be construed so as to exclude the admission of members living in 
other States. 

Section 3. Each State Society shall judge of the qualifications of its members 

♦The above amendment was for the correction of a typographical oversight, and 
has an interesting history. In the preliminary negotiations of the conference commit- 
tees, the Sons ofthe Revolution had proposed the name "Society of the Revolution'* 
and The Sons of the American Revolution proposed the name "Society of the 
American Revolution." When it appeared that the Sons of the American Revo- 
LLTioN would tenaciously adhere to the word "American" and the Sons of the Revo- 
lution as tenaciously oppose it, Lieut Gov. Woodruff of the latter proposed as a com- 
promise the title "The Society of American Independence." Mr. Warren, of the 
Sons of the American Revolution proposed the insertion of the words "the War 
for," making the title, "The Society of the War for American Independence." This 
title was regarded as cumbersome by both committees, but seemed to be the best that 
could be agreed upon and was printed in the report which it was proposed to submit 
to the two conventions on October 12, 1897. On October 11, however, Messrs. Pugh 
and Hunt of the Sons of the Revolution informed Mr. Richardson of the S. A. R. 
committee that the S. R. were willing to accept the title proposed by the S. A. R., 
and at a joint meeting that evening, the title "Society of the American Revolution'* 
was adopted. In the reports hastily reprinted for submission the following day, the 
title was not corrected m the above instance.

and of those proposed for membership, subject to the provisions of this Constitution, 
and shall regulate all matters pertaining to its own affairs. It shall have authority to 
establish local chapters within its own jurisdiction and to endow the chapters with 
such power as it may deem proper, not inconsistent with this Constitution. It shall 
have authority, after due notice and impartial trial, to expel any member, who, by 
conduct unbecoming a gentleman, shall render himself unworthy to remain a mem- 
ber of the Society. 

Section 4. Each State Society shall submit to the Annual Congress of the National 
Society a report, setting forth, by name, the additions, transfers and deaths, and 
any other changes in the membership and progress of the State Society during the 
preceding year, and make such suggestions as it shall deem proper for the promo- 
tion of the objects of the whole Society. 

Section 5. Whenever a member, in good standing in his Society, changes his 
residence from the jurisdiction of the State Society of which he is a member, to that 
of another, he shall be entitled, if he so elects, to a certificate of honorable demission 
from his own State Society, in order that he may be transferred to the State Society 
to whose jurisdiction he has changed his residence; provided, that his membership 
shall continue in the former until he shall have been elected a member of the latter. 
Each State Society shall, however, retain full control of the admission of members 
by transfer. 

Section 6. Whenever the word "State" occurs in this Constitution, it shall be 
held to include within its meaning the District of Columbia and the Territories of 
the United States. 

Section 7. A Society may be formed in any foreign country by fifteen or more 
persons who are eligible to membership under this Constitution, which shall bear the 
same relation to the National Society as a State Society, subject to the provisions of

"Resolved, That a committee of five be appointed to communicate the action of 
this General Society of the Sons of the Revolution to The National Society of 
THE Sons of the American Revolution, which has been taken upon the question

And, further, to agree upon a time and place of meeting of the Joint Committees

ties in the event of a majority of the State Societies approving of the action of the 
G^ncr&l Socictv ' 

"Resolved, That each State Society of the Sons of the Revolution and The Sons

ber. In case any doubt shall arise as to the correctness of any paper, then such 
doubtful paper shall be submitted to the Joint Committee on Revision of Membership 
Rolls. In case there is any jurisdiction in which there is only one Socie^, such

cordance with the provisions of the Constitution &3 amended, reported by the joint 
conference, the rolls of the members of The National Society of the Sons of the 
American Revolution and the General Society of the Sons of the Revolution, 
for the purpose of ascertaining whether any member in either Society is not in 
fact entitled to membership therein. And upon the report of the Joint Committee 
thus formed all members not found to have been entitled to membership in their re- 
spective National Societies, under their own Constitution and By-Laws, be held not 
to be entitled to membership of the Society of the American Revolution, but stricken 
from their rolls, unless withm such reasonable time as shall be approved by said Com-

LOUIS n. coRNisn. 

LOUIS H. CORNISH, the editor, publisher and proprietor of "The Spirit 
of '76," the official organ of the National Society "Sons of the American 
Revolution," was born at Hartford, Conn., May 23, 1855, the son of Grove 
Horton Cornish and Electa Catherine Adams, who were both born in Simsbury, 
Corni., and whose ancestors were among the first settlers of the town. 

James Cornish, the paternal ancestor from Windsor, settled in Simsbury in 1688, 
and was the first clerk of the Congregational Church at that place. His father had 
been a school teacher in Windsor, and removed with him when Simsbury was 
settled. James Cornish bought what is now the town of Granville, Mass., from 
Toto, an Indian chief, for the sum of sixteen (16) brass buttons and an old musket 

Daniel Adams, the maternal ancestor, settled in what was then Simsbury, in 1647, 
and the same homestead has been in the Adams family ever since. 

Mr. Cornish has traced his ancestry to the following emigrants to this country, 
which shows him to be by blood very much an American : 

William Spencer, Cambridge, Mass., 1631 ; John Case, Windsor, 1650 ; John Bis- 
sell, Ipswich, 1673 ; James Eno, 1647 ; John Griffen, Windsor, 1647 ; John Bancroft,

MON. TRANKLIN nURPMY. LL.D.. 

Governor op New Jersey. 

MR. MURPHY is descended on his paternal side from Revolutionary an- 
cestry, and, on the maternal, from one of the first settlers in Newark, N. J. 
His great-great-grandfather was Robert Murphy, an Irishman, who 
emigrated from England and settled in Fairfield County, Conn. His son, also named 
Robert, was born in Fairfield in 1759, but removed in early youth to Jersey City, 
then called Paulus Hook, in New Jersey. He was but a youth only seventeen years 
old when the contest between the Colonies and the English King culminated in war. 
He enlisted early in the Revolutionary Army, in Colonel Theunis Dey's regiment, 
made up mostly, if not entirely, of Bergen County men, and served in the com- 
panies of Captains Marinus and Van Cortlandt, and afterward in General Nathaniel 
Kurd's regiment of Jersey troops. He was in the eventful campaign on Long 
Island and fought in all the battles of that disastrous period of the war. This 
patriot's son was William Murphy, whose son, the Hon. William H. Murphy, was 
the father of Franklin William Murphy, the grandfather, who served in the war 
of 1812. 

Franklin Murphy was born at Jersey City in June, 1846, but removed with his 
father very early in life to Newark, where he has ever since resided. The patriotic 
instincts of his ancestors survived over to Franklin, for when the Civil War began, 
although he was barely seventeen years old, younger even than was his Revolution- 
ary ancestor when he enlisted, he enlisted as a private in Company A, of the Thir- 
teenth New Jersey Regiment of Volunteers. He saw very active service, and was 
engaged in many of the great battles of the war, especially Antietam, Chancellors- 
ville and Gettysburg. He went with Sherman in his memorable march through 
the Southern States, and was mustered out of the service at the close of the war 
as First Lieutenant. He had then served three years and was still a youth in years, 
having not then attained his majority. 

Mr. Murphy's maternal ancestor was Henry Lyon, who subscribed the "Funda- 
mental Agreements," with other inhabitants of Guilford and Branford, on the twen- 
ty-fourth of June, 1667. 

The exact time when Henry Lyon came to Newark cannot well be ascertained. 
It is possible that he came among the first settlers in 1666, although he did not- 
sign the agreements until June, 1667. The division of the land in the new colony 
into town lots was made February 6, 1667, and he then drew a lot of about eight 
acres, running from Washington Street to High Street, at the corner of William. 
Whenever he did come he immediately impressed himself on his fellow colonists, 
by whom his abilities were at once recognized. The first mention made of him in 
the records of Newark was at the town meeting held September 10, 1668, when he 
was put at the head of a committee to look after such colonists as were delinquent 
in their attendance, or came late, at these town meetings, or were disorderly. From 
that time until March, 1715, there were few town meetings in which he did not take 
a prominent part. In September, 1668, he was elected Treasurer of the Colony, 
which office he held continuously for several years, being elected from year to year. 

When the Civil War was ended Franklin Murphy, then only nineteen years old, 
embarked in the manufacture of varnish. He had no capital, but he had practical 
common sense, and a judgment remarkably mature for his years. These two quali- 
fications, added to a native shrewdness, indomitable energy and persistent per- 
severance, enabled him to conquer the difficulties which surrounded him, and finally 

54 



national Kedfeter Sena ot tbe Btnettcan 'Revolutiotu 

to establish a business which many years ago led the market in its lines. This busi- 
ness has been conducted by a corporation bearing the name of its founder, and 
always President, whose wares are sold all over the world. The business of this 
corporation, in all its details, including various methods of the manufacture of its 
products, has been conducted under the personal supervision of its founder and 
President. The care exercised in the preparation of its manufactures has been so 
minute and systematic, that the entire confidence of the purchasing community has 
been secured, and all that is required to inspire confidence is the brand of the manu- 
facturer. 

While thus succeeding in his business ventures, Mr. Murphy has been mindful 
of the duty he owed as a citizen to the community in which he lived. With that 
conununity he had identified himself, always ready to yield to its proper demands. 
He served as an Alderman from his ward in the Common Council of Newark, and 
while acting in that capacity was wise and zealous in his exertions to promote 
the interest of the ward and city. Later on he became a member of the Assembly 
of his State. While holding these representative positions he was fearless and in- 
dependent in voice and vote, always striving for the right. 

For several years he was at the head of the State Executive Committee of the 
great political party to which he had given his allegiance. In this position he gained 
laurels, which gave him such a prominence in the State and among the men of his 
party, that in 1901 he was unanimously nominated for Governor. His nomination 
was an event unequalled in the political history of New Jersey. It seemed when 
the Gubernatorial Convention met that it was a foregone conclusion, in the mind 
of every delegate, that Franklin Murphy should be the nominee of that convention. 
No other candidate was named, and he was nominated with an unbounded en- 
thusiasm. The election which followed was one of the most remarkable ever con- 
ducted in the State. Not a voice was raised against the integrity of Mr. Murphy, 
or dared asperse his character in any respect Not a newspaper, in its columns, ever 
hinted a charge against him which affected his private course. His opponent was 
•one of the most popular men in his party, but Mr. Murphy was elected by a triumph- 
ant majority, and has entered upon the office of Chief Magistrate of his State ap- 
parently with the good wishes of all. The people believe in him and they trust him. 

At the formation of the Society of the Sons of the American Revolution, Mr. 
Murphy's patriotic soul was fired by the possibilities of such an organization, and he 
threw himself into its work with all his vigor. He was made Vice-President of 
the Society, then Secretary-General of the National Society, which office he held 
for three years. During that period he gave to the performance of his duties much 
of his time, and made large drafts upon his purse to aid in the furtherance of the 
interest of the association. He then became President-General, and carried into that 
position his usual pertinacity of purpose in the performance of every duty. The 
Genera] Society, the different State organizations, will not soon forget the debt 
of gratitude they all owe to Mr. Murphy for the many kindnesses done by him 
while in office as Secretary and President-General. 

The loss of a noble son, just graduating from college^ has saddened his life, but 
two children, another son, who bears his father's name, a worthy son of a worthy 
sire, and a daughter, recently married to William Burnet Kenney, Esq., a descendant 
of Dr. William Burnet, Surgeon-General of the Revolutionary Army, still bless him 
by their love. 

In the prime of his life, with an ample fortune, surrounded by admiring, apprecia- 
tive friends, who have been endeared to him by his many excellent traits of character, 
respected by all, honored by the citizens of his native State, he has a future of 
possibilities which none can foresee, but in which his friends can catch glimpses of 
future and more exalted honor. 

Mr. Murphy is a member of several societies, patriotic and otherwise. Lafayette 
College, at Easton, Pa., has lately conferred on him the degree of LL. D.

the Army. In February and March, 1899, he made the first complete inspection of 
the United States troops in the eight Military Departments of Cuba and Porto 
Rico^ visiting every considerable station occupied by soldiers, and looking especially 
after the sick and stq^plies and soldierly training. Hb reports were published in 
the professional papers, and attracted particular attention. Colonel Wagner, the 
distinguished military author, speaks in his report from personal observation of the 
gallant bearing of General Breckinridge during the Santiago Campaign. 

General Breckinridge's tonr of duty took him last to Alaska, and he now is 
engaged upon a tour of tnq>ection to the Far East, which involves travel of possibly 
thirty thousand miles, and embraces the scenes of the operations of the American 
army in China and to a view of the Great Wall and the Grand Canal and the Sacred 
City at Pekin, and an inspection of the Philippine Islands, through their length and 
breadth, among their various tribes and religions — Mohammedan, Pagan, and Chris- 
tian, whether Negrito, Moro, Viscayan or Tagalog. It was during this tour that the 
names of some of the charter members were collected of the first Society of the Sons 
of the American Revolution in the Orient, of which he was made the preliminary 
President — probably our most remote Society, and the latest to crown the admirable 
work of President-General Walter Seth Logan's most successful administration, in 
which we all rejoice. 

General Breckinridge is also a member of the District of Columbia Commandery 
Loyal Legion of the United States ; the Naval and Military Order of the Spanish- 
American War ; the Military Order of Foreign Wars of United States, Pennsylvania 
Commandery ; the Society of the Am^y of the Cumberland ; the Society of the Army 
of Santiago de Cuba, and Senior Vice-Commander-General, Society of American 
Wars, and Vice-President of the Society of the Army of the Tennessee.

CORNELIUS AA\ORY PUGSLEY. 

CORNELIUS AMORY PUGSLEY, son of Gilbert T. and Julia (Meeker) 
Pugsley, was born on the homestead farm, not far from the village of 
Peekskill, a thriving town of New York even in the days of the Revolu- 
tion, when it was a base of supplies and a center for the mobilization of troops for 
the Continental Army. His maternal grandfather was Cornelius Meeker, a son 
of Benjamin Meeker, a soldier of the Revolution, and descendant of William Meeker, 
avfounder of the town of Elizabeth, N. J., who was supposed to have come to Massa- 
chusetts Bay about 1630, while his father's American ancestor was James Pugsley, 
who came from England about 1680. James Pugsley left a son, John, of Pelham 
Manor, whose son Samuel, the great-grandfather of Mr. Pugsley, married Elizabeth 
Drake, daughter of Jeremiah Drake, a brother of Colonels Samuel and Gilbert Drake, 
of the Continental Army, in which Samuel also served. 

Mr. Pugsley grew to boy and manhood on the homestead farm, and acquired, in 
the public schools of the village, and by private instruction, an education that was 
largely supplemented afterward by travel and extensive reading. Then, at seventeen, 
he began his business career as a clerk in the village post office, but resigned, 
shortly after being promoted assistant postmaster, to accept a position in the West- 
chester County National Bank, one of the oldest institutions of the State. Here he 
rapidly developed as a banker, became cashier in 1879, Vice-President in the spring 
of 1897, and President in the fall of the same year, the bank, under his administra- 
tion, becoming one of the soundest in New York. In banking circles he also steadily 
grew in esteem, was made the first Chairman of Group VII. of the New York State 
Bankers' Association wheq it was organized, and, in 1896, when The American 
Bankers' Association, by an amended constitution, made it possible for the State 
Bankers' Association to elect a member to the Executive Council of The American 
Bankers' Association, was the first chosen from New York, being elected for a term 
of three years. 

Mr. Pugsley enjoys a reputation that is steadily extending, as an orator and after- 
dinner speaker, and on a number of occasions, of late years, has been the orator of 
the day at prominent commemorative celebrations. While always interested in poli- 
tics, he was never a candidate for office until the fall of 1900, when he was elected 
to the Fifty-seventh Congress from the Sixteenth District of New York. Upon the 
convening of that body in December, 1901, his ability was fully recognized by the 
Speaker of the House, and he was honored with an appointment on the Banking and 
Currency Committee. 

Besides being a member and Treasurer-General of the National Society, Sons of 
the American Revolution, Mr. Pugsley is a member of the Empire State Society, 
S. A. R. ; of the New England Society; the Harlem and Patria Clubs, and the 
Chamber of Commerce of New York. He is also President of the Board of Trustees 
of the Field Library, Peekskill; Trustee and Treasurer of the Field Home, York- 
town; Trustee and Treasurer of the Board of Trustees of the Peekskill Military 
Academy, and an elder of the First Presbyterian Church, at Peekskill. 

On April 7, 1880, Mr. Pugsley married Emma C, the only daughter of John H. 
Gregory, a retired New York banker. They have one son, Chester Dc Witt, a 
young man now in the preparatory schools of New York City.

ETMCLBERT DUDLEY WARnCLD. 

ETHELBERT DUDLEY WARFIELD was born at Lexington. Ky., March 
i6, 1861. His father, William Warfield, was descended on the paternal side 
from the Puritan families who formed the settlements at Aunapolifl and 
South River, Md., about the middle of the Seventeenth Century. Among his an* 
cestors Judge Edward Dorsey, General William Burgess, and Colonel Nicholas 
Greenberry, acting Governor, 1693, played important roles in the old colony days, 
and ElisluL ^yarfield and Joseph Burgess rendered services in the epoch of the 
Revolution ; on the maternal side he was descended from Pennsylvania Scotch-Irish 
stock, his grandfather, William Caldwell, serving in the Pennsylvania Line, and 
losing an arm in the War of the Revolution. His mother, Mary Cabell Breckin- 
ridge, was descended from well-known Virginia families, prominent in Colonial 
and Revolutionary times, four ancestors, General WilHam Campbell, Colonel William 
Preston, Colonel Joseph Cabell, and Attorney-General John Breckinridge, rendering 
services in council and in camp in the struggle for Independence. Not only loyal in 
'76, the family was intense in its loyalty to the Union in '61. His paternal grand- 
father, Benjamin Warfield, a Captain of Riflemen in 1813, a strong emancipationist 
and Union man, died before the war broke out. His maternal grandfather, Rev. 
Robert J. Breckinridge, D.D., LL.D., was one of the foremost leaders of those who 
kept Kentucky true to the Union. His father, William Warfield, received a com- 
mission from President Lincoln, and served on the staff of General William Nelson 
for a time, and subsequently in civil employment. 

Educated at Princeton College, Wadham College, Oxford (England), and Colum- 
bia College (New York) Law School, Ethelbert D. Warfield began the practice 
of the law in New York City, but very soon returned to Lexington, Ky., and in July, 
1886, formed a partnership with Watts Parker, Esq., subsequently judge of the 
Qrcuit Court. He met with success in the practice of his profession, but a strong 
taste for literary work manifesting itself in frequent publications, he was invited to 
assume the Presidency of Miami University (Ohio) in 1888. He occupied this 
position from September, 1888. till June, 1891, when he was elected to the Presi- 
dency of Lafayette College (Pennsylvania). In both positions he combined the 
professorship of history with the Presidency. 

In 1891 he was chosen an elder in the Brainerd Presbyterian Church ; in 18^ a 
director in the Theological Seminary at Princeton, and in 1899, ^ strong leaning to- 
ward religious work found final expression in his ordination to the ministry of the 
Presbyterian Church. In May, 1900, he was elected Chaplain-General of the Sons 
of the American Revolution, and in 1901 re-elected to that position. 

President Warfield has published several volumes and numerous pamphlets on 
historical and educational topics ; of these the following are most noteworthy : "The 
Kentucky Resolutions of 1798, An Historical Study," "Joseph Cabell Breckinridge. 
Jr. A Brief Biography," "Our Debt to the Pioneer," "Christopher Columbus," 
"The England of the Westminster Assembly." "John Wycliff," 'Christian Edu- 
cation," The Place of Athletics in College Life," "At the Evening Hour. College 
Addresses." 

President Warfield has been twice married, (i) to Miss Sarah Lacy Broalas, of 
St. Louis, Mo., and (2) to Miss Eleanor Frances Tilton, of Natick, Mass. By the 
second marriage he has five children.

SONS or TOE A/AERICAN REVOLUTION 



ANY person may be eligible to membership in this Society who is a male 
above the age of twenty-one, and is lineally descended from an ancestor 
who assisted in establishing American Independence during the War of 
the Revolution, either as a military or naval officer, a soldier or a sailor, 
an official in the service of any of the thirteen original colonies of the United 
Colonies or States, or of Vermont, a member of the Committee of Correspon- 
dence or of Public Safety, etc., or a recognized patriot who rendered material ser- 
vice in the cause of American Independence. 

Blank forms for application for membership will be furnished by the Secretary 
of any State Society, S. A. R. The applications are to be made out in duplicate, 
or, if the applicant desires membership in a local chapter, in triplicate, and for- 
warded to the Secretary of the State Society, or to the Secretary of the local 
chapter. 

In the application is set forth the line of descent from and the service rendered 
by the ancestor through whom eligibility is claimed, together with a memorandum 
of the authority for the statement of service and an affidavit as to the line of de- 
scent, etc Supplemental application blanks are furnished when it is desired to 
claim eligibility through more than one ancestor, but no charge is made for filing 
supplemental applications. 

Persons desiring to establish claims to eligibility for membership in this 
Society are frequently at a loss to know just how to proceed. Family records 
and the majority of town histories, while of the greatest value to those interested 
m them, are not accepted by the officers of the Society as authority for anything 
more than the line of descent. The military or civil services of an ancestor must 
invariably be certified to by the proper officials either of the State in whose ser- 
vice the ancestor was, or of the General Government, except in cases where the 
service can be found in such publications as will hereafter be mentioned. Occa- 
sionally original warrants for land granted for military service, commissions, dis- 
charges, muster-rolls, certificates of membership in the Order of the Cincinnati, 
etc., are available. Such papers, or duly certified copies, are accepted as proof 
of service. 

In most instances the family records and traditions set forth the revolutionary 
services of ancestors, but it is frequently found that the family records contain 
nothing more than the names of ancestors and the intermediate generations. To 
assist in the work of certifying family records and to aid those who are investi- 
gating to ascertain whether or not their ancestors rendered service for the cause 
of Independence, the following suggestions are offered: 

87 



fftotfonal 'Redtotct Sons ot tbc Bmcrteait Vei^oltttioiu 

PENSIONS. 

If the ancestor is supposed to have been a pensioner, address 'The Honorable 
Commissioner of Pensions, Washington, D. C," setting forth the facts or supposi- 
tions in the case. He will reply, usually within two or three weeks, and no charge is 
made for search or certificate. It must be borne in mind, however, that most of 
the records of pensions granted for the relief of those disabled in service, together 
with the rosters of soldiers that were on file in the War Department, were de- 
stroyed by fire in 1800 or burned by the British in 1814. The first laws were 
passed in 1818, granting pensions to those who had served not less than nine 
months in the Continental Line or the Navy. This did not reach the Militia or 
Minute-men. In 1820, Congress restricted this law to those who would prove 
that they were in needy circumstances, as eight thousand men had applied for 
pensions. The "Alarm Act" of 1820, as it was called, touched the pride of a great 
number of the pensioners to such an extent that they withdrew their names from 
the rolls. In 1832 an act was passed granting pensions to all survivors, providing 
they had served at least six months, either in the Line or the Militia. Thus those 
who had served less than six months were not entitled to the benefits of the act. 

The widows of soldiers who had been married before 1853 were entitled to 
pensions, and through the papers of the widow on file in the Pension Office, many 
records can be found. 

OFFICERS OF THE CONTINENTAL LINE. 

If the ancestor were an officer in the Continental Line (the regular army of the 
Revolution) consult ''Heitman's Historical Register of the Officers of the Conti- 
nental Army," which contains the records of about nine-tenths of the officers of 
the Line and a few Militia officers. 

CIVIL OFFICERS. 

If the ancestor were a civil officer. Member of Legislature, Congress, State 
Council, Committees of Safety, Correspondence, Inspection, etc., during the War, 
consult authentic histories or address the Secretary of State of the State in which 
the ancestor resided. 

STATE RECORDS. 

In some States it is an easy matter to secure official information in regard to 
services of revolutionary ancestors, while in other States it is almost impossible to 
secure information of any description, owing to the failure to properly preserve 
the records or the loss of records by fire or other causes. The following is a list 
of States in which troops or seamen were raised for the prosecution of the war 
and some directions for securing information concerning their records: 

CONNECTICUT. 

A very complete list of nearly 28,000 names has been printed by this State. 
The volume is entitled "Connecticut Men in the War of the Revolution," and is 
to be found in many of the large libraries. 

DELAWARE. 

The records of this State are scant. Address the Secretary of State, Dover, 
Del., who charges two cents per line for copies and $1.00 for certificate. 

88 



.J 



ItatfoiMl 1le0f0tet Son6 ot tbe Bmetfcan IRei^Itttfotu 

GEORGIA. 

The Georgia Historical Society, of which William Harden, Savannah, Ga., is 
Secretary, owns many books and manuscripts referring to the Revolution. A 
smalt fee is charged for search. 

MAINE. 

Copies of records on file may be obtained, at typewriter charges, of the Bureau 
of Industrial and Labor Statistics, Augusta, Me. 

MARYLAND. 

The Commissioner of the Land OfHce, Annapolis, Md., will make a search 
in such records as are available, for 25 cents. Where the name is found a certifi- 
cate is furnished for 75 cents. The Scharf Library at Johns Hopkins University 
contains one hundred muster rolls, etc. 

MASSACHUSETTS. 

This State has a magnificent "card system" of index to Revolutionary military 
service. The Secretary of the Commonwealth, Boston, Mass., charges $1.00 for 
certificate of service, but makes no charge if name is not found. 

NEW HAMPSHIRE. 

The Secretary of State, Concord, N. H., charges $3.00 for certificate of service* 
but where name is not found no charge is made for the search. 

NEW JERSEY. 

The Adjutant-General has compiled and printed the "New Jersey Register of 
Men in the Revolution." The book may be found in many of the large libraries. 

NEW YORK. 

Volume I of the Archives of the State of New York contains the names of 
some 40,000 officers and men, and is to be found in our large libraries. 

NORTH CAROLINA. 

All Revolutionary records appear to be lost. A few names of officers may be 
found in such publications as "Saflfeirs Records of the Revolution," "Heitman's 
Historical Register of Officers of the Continental Army," "Hammersley's Hun- 
dred-Year Register," etc., which are to be found in many libraries. 

PENNSYLVANIA. 

Hon. William H. Egle, M. D., the venerable historian of Pennsylvania, who is 
State Librarian at Harrisburg, Pa., makes a charge of $2.00 for search, and in 
case the name is found, adds a fee of $1.00 for the certificate. The Archives of 
Pennsylvania, available in many large libraries, contain many lists of Revolution- 
ary soldiers. 

RHODE ISLAND. 

The Secretary of State, Providence, R. I., has charge of the Revolutionary 
records, and makes a charge of $2.00 for search, and in case the name is founds 
adds a f^e of $1.00 for the certificate. 

89 



flational Hcdtotet Som ot tbe Bmcrican Hepoltitloiu 

SOUTH CAROLINA. 

Same as North Carolina. ''Gregg's History of the Old Cheraws** also contains 
the names of a few men from this State. 

VERMONT. 

The Adjutant-General, Montpelier, Vt, charges $2.00 for certificate of service, 
but makes no charge for search where name is not found. 

VIRGINIA. 

With the exception of the records of land warrants, and a few rosters given 
in "Saffell's Records of the Revolution." it is a very hard matter to secure infor- 
mation of Revolutionary service in this State. Mr. W. G. Stanard, of Richmond, 
Va., a professional geneaologist, charges $1.00 for searching such records as are 
at hand in the Capitol; and in cases where he finds the record, he secures the 
proper certificate for $1.50 extra. 

WAR DEPARTMENT RECORDS. 

Through the efforts of the Sons of the American Revolution, Congress passed 
a bill some time since providing for the gathering and indexing of all available 
Revolutionary records by the War Department. This work has been one of great 
magnitude, a large force of clerks having been kept at work for many months. 
The War Records Of!ice in Washington now has a card index which is of inesti- 
mable value to this nation. A letter addressed to the "Chief of the Record and 
Pension Office, War Department, Washington, D. C," will always meet with a 
courteous reply. The following extracts from a letter written by Colonel F. C. 
Ainsworth, U. S. Army, the present Chief of the Record and Pension Office, will 
show clearly to what extent inquiries should be limited: 

"The Department is now prepared to answer all reasonable inquiries." * * * 
"Many of the requests that are now being received, however, are based upon such 
indefinite data, or involve the search of the records for so many different men, 
that it has been found impracticable to comply with them." ♦ ♦ ♦ "The De- 
partment has therefore been compelled to limit its search in the case of any one 
correspondent to the names of not more than two ancestors, whose full names 
must be given, as well as the States of which they are supposed to have been 
residents." 

CONSULT YOUR STATE LIBRARY. 

Its thousands of volumes of National, State, County and Town Histories. 
Genealogies and Public Records offer rare inducements to persons searching^'for 
the military, civil or family records of their Revolutionary or Colonial ancestry. 

Reference to any of the following books in the State Library will be accepted 
by the officers of the Sons of the American Revolution, without further certificate, 
as authority for service: 

Archives of the State, of New York. Volume I contains the names of some 
40,000 soldiers from New York State. 

Archives of Pennsylvania. The two volumes of this immense collection of 
Pennsylvania history, which contain the lists of the Revolutionary soldiers of the 
State, have been stolen from the library, but will be replaced upon the completion 
of another edition, now in hand. 

Census of Pensioners, 1840. 

Connecticut Men in the Revolution. Contains the names and service of nearly 
28,000 soldiers from Connecticut.

50,000 officers and soldiers of Virginia, Maryland, Pennsylvania, etc., arranged by 
regiment and company, but not indexed. 

United States Government Public Documents. Complete set. In these docu- 
ments may be found all actions of Congress regarding Revolutionary claims. Pen- 
sion Roll of 1835 (Volumes 12, 13 and 14, Senate Documents, 23d Congress, First 
Session), Census of Revolutionary Pensioners of 1840, etc., etc. 

Whiteley's Revolutionary Soldiers of Delaware. A pamphlet, containing roster 
of Colonel Hall's Regiment, 1780, and several companies. 

The various Historical Societies of the country have, during the past hundred 
years, gathered and preserved in print, a vast amount of history. There is no 
descendant of the Revolutionary or Colonial families of America who could not 
extend his knowledge of his ancestors or the localities in which they lived, by 
searching the Historical Collections in the State Library.

NUMBER or TROOPS 

Furnished During the War of the Revolution by the Several States. 

« 

(Copyright, 1892, by F. B. Heitman, Washington, D. C.) 

THE exact number of men in the Continental Establishment, furnished by each 
State in the War of the Revolution, is not known, but an approximate esti- 
mate, made by Colonel Pierce, Paymaster-General of the Continental Army, 
and the Treasury Accountants, in 1787, is as shown in the first column of this table. 
In addition, however, all the States furnished regiments, or independent battalion*, 
or companies of State troops, militia, ran^^ers, riflemen, etc., for brief services, who 
were called out to assist the Continental Army in emergencies, or were raised to 
protect and defend their own States, many of whom were in service at two or more 
different periods. The exact number thus furnished cannot be given, but upon 
examination of various estimates, I believe the figures shown in the second column 
of the table to be, in round figures, approximately correct : 

Continental State Troops, 

Army. Militia, etc. Total. 

New Hampshire 12,497 4,000 16,497 

Massachusetts 67,907 20,000 87,907 

Rhode Island 5,908 4,000 9,908 

Connecticut 3i>930 9,000 40,9J9 

New York 17,781 10,000 27,781 

New Jersey 10,726 7,000 17,726 

Pennsylvania 25,678 10,000 35,678 

Delaware * 2,386 . 1,000 3,386 

Maryland 13,912 9,000 22,912 

Virginia 26,678 30,000 56,678 

North Carolina 7,263 13,000 . 20,263 

South Carolina 6,417 20,000 26,417 

Georgia 2,679 8,000 10,679 

Total 231,771 145,000 376,771 

The total here given is excessive as to the number that served in the army, for 
many served two, three and even four terms. Many of the men who entered the 
service in 1775 re-entered in 1776, and again in 1777, and again in 1780, and were, 
therefore, counted two, three or four times, and from the best information attain- 
able it is fair to assume that the number of individuals actually engaged in the 

military service during the war did not exceed 250,000.

national 'Regldtet Sotid ot tbe Smetican Itevolution* 



BUTTONS or THE AMERICAN 

REVOLUTION. 

Nos. I, 2, 3 and 4 are American Army Buttons. No. i is wood, pewter-faced, 

with gutstring for a shank. Nos. 2 and 3 are pewter, with iron shanks, and 

No. 4 is entirely of pewter. 
No. 5 is a pewter button of a noted Tory Regiment of the British Army known as 

the First Americans or Queen's Rangers. 
Nol 6 is a pewter button of the most despised Tory Regiment of the British Army, 

Butler's Rangers, who were engaged in the massacres of Wyoming and 

Cherry Valley. 
No. 7 is a pewter button of the King's Eighth Foot, a regular line regiment of the 

British Army, who saw much hard service on the Lakes during both the 

Wars of 1776 and 1812. 
No. 8 is a pewter button of the Thirty-fourth Foot of British Regulars. The 

flank companies were captured with Burgoyne. 
Na 9 is a pewter button of the Tenth Foot British Regulars. They were in Bos- 
ton at the commencement of the Revolutionary War and fought at Bunker 

Hilt, Long Island, Brandywine, Germantown and in operations around New 

York. 
No. 10 is a pewter button of the Twenty-second Foot British Regulars, who fought 

at Bunker Hill, Brooklyn, Rhode Island and in operations around New York. 
No. II is a pewter button of the Thirty-eighth Foot British Regulars, who fought 

at Bunker Hill, Brooklyn and in operations around New York. 
No. 12 is a pewter button of the Fifty-seventh Foot British Regulars, who were 

mostly engaged around New York, but one company surrendered at Yorktown. 
Na 13 is a pewter button of the Forty-fourth Foot British Regulars, who landed 

in Boston just after the battle of Bunker Hill and fought through the War of 

the Revolution, and were also very active in the War of 1812, being one of 

the regiments that captured Washington, D. C. 
No. 14 is a brass button of the British Artillery, who were engaged in almost every 

action during the war. 
Na 15 is a pewter button of the Fortieth Foot of British Regulars, a regiment 

particularly distinguished for its defence of the Chew House at the Battle of 

Germantown, and for which act of bravery they were awarded medals by the 

British Government. 
Na 16 is a pewter button of the British Army and probably of a Tory Regiment. 

but its identity is not quite clear. 
Nos. 17, 18, 19, 20 AND 21 are different types of Washington buttons, and probably 

none of them is military, but were used by gentlemen during Washington's 

administration as President, although Colonel Asa Bird Gardiner, in an article 

in the "Magazine of American History," published some years ago, claims No. 

20 was used on the uniforms of officers of Washington's staff.

ARIZONA SOCIETY. 

THE Arizona Society of S. A. R. was finally organized on the 13th of June, 1896, 
although its inception dates back to 1891, and through the efforts of Adjutant- 
General H. F. Robinson the organization of the society was perfected. 
Charter Members — H. F. Robinson, W. H. Robinson, J. Frank Elwell, Shirley 
Christy, Charles B. Christy, George D. Christy, A. P. Walbridge, L. W. Coggins. 
J. Ernest Walker. 

The annual meeting of the society is held on the 22d of February of each year 
unless the same shall fall on Sunday, in which case upon the day following. This 
meeting is followed by a banquet which has been very successful. 
Flag Day is usually observed with appropriate exercises. 

During the time that General H. F. Robinson was President o]E> the society a flag 
bill was passed by the Legislature, to prevent the desecration of the national flag. 

Through the instrumentality of the society during the year of 1900, the society 
of D. A. R. was formed with about fifteen members.

ARKANSAS SOCIETY. 

A SPECIAL committee of the New Jersey Society requested Governor James P. 
Eagle to co-operate in the establishment of a Society in Arkansas. Gov- 
ernor Eagle, a descendant of the Revolution, issued commissions from his 
office under the seal of the State to several of the leading citizens authorizing them 
to institute a Society in the State of Arkansas. During the summer and fall of 
iflSp, the Registrar |>repared biographical sketches of persons who desired member- 
ship in the Society, and these sketches were printed in the newspapers of the Capitol 
of the State, creating popular interest in Revolutionary ancestors, and in this way 
added a number of new members to their rolls. 

On February ii, 1890, the Society, having a membership of forty, adopted a 
permanent constitution and by-laws, and a set of officers was elected as follows : 

President, Colonel Samuel W. Williams. 

Vice-President, Hon. R. A. Edgerton. 

Secretary and Registrar, Professor Josiah H. Shinn. 

Historian, Fay Hempstead. 

Treasurer, G. F. Rozell. 

Delegates— Governor James P. Eagle, of Little Rock, and John M. Hill, of Fort 
Smith, a son of General D. H. Hill. 

The Society, although small, has awakened public interest in Revc^ntionarj 
fliemoriesy and is expected to prove a useful factor in promoting patriotic spirit 
ML the State. 

The death of the President of the Society was announced in the last annual year

IN 1876 the one htmdredth anai^^ersary of American Independence was celebrated 
in every prominent city In the United States. In earlier times during the annual 
celebraticm oi the Fourth of July it had been the custom for surviving soldiers ol 
tiie ficvoltitiott to join in the public parades. Before ^1876 had arrived the veterans 
of Ihe Revolution had passed away. To take their place in the celebration in that 
year in San Francisco, a resident of that city proposed the formation of a detach- 
ment of sons and grandsons of soldiers of the American Revolution, and from 
lius celebration really sprang the Society of the Sons oi the American Revolution,

COLORADO SOCIETY. 

THE G>Iorado Society Sons of the American Revolution was organized July 4, 
1896, with Joseph F. Tuttle, Jr., as President, and thirteen charter members ; 
headquarters at Denver. It now has a membership of over 140, and is grow- 
ing rapidly in strength and influence. 

Regular monthly meetings have been held, at which a systematic series of papers 
have been read, covering the events of the Revolutionary War by years and by 
States, the lives and characteristics of the leading American and British officers, and 
other subjects of general interest. 

No Revolutionary monuments have been erected, nor historic spots preserved in 
this State. At the birth of the nation Colorado was an unbroken wilderness; but 
when the soldiers of the Continental Army had been disbanded they turned their 
faces to the West, having vanquished an Eastern foe, and their descendants con- 
quered the wilderness. 

A sword was sent by the Colorado society to its President, General Irving Hale, 
who was serving in the Philippines. At the time of presentation of Spanish war 
medals and certificates, the society also presented to each of its members who 
served in that war a gold medal of special design. 

Cash, books and magazines have been sent to the American Library of Manila for 
the benefit of the soldiers and sailors in the Philippines. 

The society adopted appropriate resolutions upon the death of President and Com- 
patriot McKinley, and participated in the memorial parade and services. 

A flag law, drawn and advocated by this society, passed the last Legislature without 
opposition, and was promptly signed by the Governor. The placing of Colorado on 
the list of States which have adopted stringent legislation against the desecration of 
the flag was thus primarily due to the efforts of the Colorado Society Sons of the 
American Revolution.

CONNECTICUT SOCIETY. 

THE Connecticut Society has preserved the following historic landmarks in the 
State : 
I. The Lebanon War (Mce, in which were held the meetings of the G>uncil of 
Safety daring the Revolution. This G>uncil was appointed by the General Assembly 
of Connecticut early in the war, with power to forward troops, munitions of war and 
supplies, together with other powers, making the Council a substitute for the General 
Assembly when that body was not in session. 

The building was restored and repaired by the Connecticut Society in 1891, is 
owned by that Society, and is now used as a public library and depository of revolu- 
tionary relics. 

For further particulars see "The Lebanon War Office," published by the Society 
in 1892, and still for sale for the benefit of the Memorial Fund. 

2. The Nathan Hale Schoolhouse, at New London. This building, in which 
Nathan Hale taught from May, 1774, to July, 1775, at which time he joined the army, 
has been purchased by the Connecticut Society, with the assistance of the Daughters 
of the American Revolution. It has been restored to its original condition and re- 
moved to public ground granted for the purpose. The building was dedicated, with 
appropriate ceremonies, on the 17th of June, 1901. It is now occupied as the head- 
quarters of Mie Lucretia Shaw Chapter, D. A. R. 

The hronse tablets erected by the society are the following : 
June agth, 1894. — On the elm tree in front of the Wadsworth Athenaeum in Hartford, 
conmiemorating the first visit of Washington to Connecticut See Year Book, 

1895-^ p. 47. 
Jnlj 5th, 1895. — ^At Beacon Hill, New Haven, commemorating the defense of New 
Haven at the time of Tryon's invasion, July 5th, 1779. The proceedings at 
this ceremony, with addresses in full, are recorded in a book published by the 
David Humphreys Branch of the Society. 
June 17th, 1896. — ^In the Lebanon War Office, indicating the character of the building 
and recording the names of some of the prominent men of the Revolution who 
have been within its walls. See Year Book, 1897-9, P- 5i- 
June 17th, 1901. — In the Nathan Hale Schoolhouse at New London, commemorating 
the service and martyrdom of Nathan Hale, and indicating the character of 
the building. The proceedings at the unveiling of this tablet and at the dedi- 
cation of the Nathan Hale Schoolhouse will be published in the next year-book 
of the Society. 
In addition to these tablets the Society has issued, upon carefully attested applica- 
tions, 720 bronze grave-markers, designating graves of Revolutionary soldiers and 
patriots in the State. These markers were designed by a member of the Society, 
and adopted for the purpose of marking the graves of Revolutionary patriots through- 
out the State. 

The Society has, for fsvt years, awarded prizes to the extent of one hundred dol- 
lars each year, for excellence in original essays on designated subjects connected with 
the American Revolution, by pupils in schools throughout the State. 
The publications of the Society have been : 
Year-book for 1891, 214 pages. Octavo. 
Year-book for 1892. 274 pages. Octavo.

A liberal supporter of religious and charitable work. Married Elizabeth A. Corey, 
rlanghter of Daniel Corey, of Taunton, Mass., February 20, 1856. Has one adopted 
child, Jennie E. Greeley. His residence on Trumbull Street, New Haven, in the 
beautiful City of Elms, is one of the most charming and attractive of its many hand- 
some homes. 

General Greeley is deeply interested in all public matters that pertain to the pros- 
perity and advancement of the business and educational interests of his adopted city. 
He has been especially interested in the Manual Training School. The Scientific 
and Electrical apparatus for the laboratory was donated by him. 

General Greeley is very much in earnest in his work for the Sons of the American

DELAWARE SOCIETY. 

Hon. Howakd De Haven Ross, President. 

THE 3d of September, 1901, was a red-letter day for the Delaware Society, Sons 
of the American Revolution. That memorable day to all patriotic Dela- 
wareans recorded one of the most notable events in the history of the State — 
the unveiling of the handsome flag memorial at Cooch's Bridge, Delaware, to mark 
the spot where the Stars and Stripes were first unfurled in battle, September 3, 1777. 
Our country's flag, moulded by Washington, fashioned by the hands of Betsy Ross. 
and at Cooch's Bridge first unfurled in battle, is there chiseled in Delaware granite 
to stand for all time upon its initial battlefield, as the token of our love and gratitude. 

**Two babies' hands unveiled the stone, 
Where first unfurled in battle shone 

Our flag of thirteen bars. 

Our flag of thirteen stars. 
At Cooch's Bridge in Delaware, 
And lo! defeated there; 
For on that warm September third. 
In Seventeen Seventy- Seven, was heard 

No word of cheer for the thirteen bars. 

No word of cheer for the thirteen stars, 
Defeat, defeat, defeat alone, 

Was all our dear flag knew ; 
When first unfurled in battle shone 

Its red and white and blue. 

**Two babies of our glorious land. 
Two 'little soldiers,' heart and hand, 

To live for freedom's cause, 

In peace as well as wars; 
In life's broad battlefield,- 
To right alone to yield. 
Twas fit that baby hands should raise. 
The veil which hid the stone, whose praise 

Tells where our flag in infancy 

First floated to the breezes free; 
Aspire, wee ones, to noble deeds. 

And keep your wee hearts true; 
In future action, future needs 

Our country looks to you." 

The monument at Cooch's Bridge was unveiled in beautiful ceremony by two little 
Blue Hen's Chickens of two Summers, descendants in the seventh generation from 
Revolutionary patriots. The one, Master Francis Allyn Cooch, Jr., is the lineal de- 
scendant of the head of the Cooch family, which still maintains in its estate the only 
historic battlefield on Delaware soil. The other. Master Howard De Haven Ross, 
Jr^ life member of the Delaware Society and youngest member of the Sons of the 
American Revolution, is the lineal descendant of the De Haven family of Revolu- 
tionary fame, which gave material assistance to the cause of American Independence 
during the dreary Winter of the encampment of the patriot army under Washington 
at Valley Forge.

"Among the monuments that grace 
Thy realm, and mark some storied place. 

Make room, oh, Liberty I 
For one plain stone, to tell the world 
Where first in battle was unfurled 

The banner of the free. 

"The flag beneath whose graceful folds 
Each man a crown and sceptre holds — 

Each, king of this proud land; 
But 'neath its white and crimson bars. 
Its azure field of glittering stars, 

Is felt no tyrant's hands. 

"They little knew, our honored sires, 
That kindled freedom's altar fires, 

This flag came at God's call. 
Nor dreamed they of a day to be 
When it should float on land and sea. 
High-throned over all. 

"Come back, dear flag, with added stars. 
Come, torn with storms of other wars, 

Here was thy course begun. 
High waving here 'mid loudest cheers, 
And looking out across the years, 

Review thy victories won. 

"Come, spirits of heroic dead, 
Who 'neath this banner fought and bled, 

That this soil might be free; 
Inspire us as we gather round

DISTRICT or COLUMBIA SOCIETY. 

Noble D. Lakner, President. 

THE story of the life, thus far» of the District of Columbia Society of the Sons 
of the American Revolution is brief and simple, but eminently satisfactory. 
It has been strong and healthful, harmonious and influential, in promoting 
the objects enumerated in the Constitution. 

Its growth has been steady, its meetings regular, well attended, and full of in- 
terest 

After several preliminary meetings a Constitution was adopted and the Society 
formally organized, with Admiral D. D. Porter as its first President, on July 25, 
iSga 

The first year it had a membership of 187. Since then the whole number of 
members has reached 763. On the roster to-day are 466 names. 

Located in the Capital of our Country, the membership has been drawn from all 
parts of the Union, and many members have come and gone. 

For the same reason we have had in our Society many men of note. The Army 
and Navy have been numerously represented, while the Supreme Court, the Senate 
and House of Representatives, the Departments, different Educational Institutions, 
and the different professions and business occupations of our country have con- 
tributed to our numbers and our reputation. 

The Recruiting and Lookout Committees are still diligently at work, so that the 
increase for the present year is the largest for several years, a gratifying beginning 
of our second decade. 

It is, therefore, permitted us, as compatriots, and as descendants of our Revolu- 
tionary ancestors, to look back upon the first decade of our Society with much of sat- 
isfaction, and to look forward to the coming decades and centuries with the hope 
that its membership may. constantly increase audits influence ever become more potent 
in developing that spirit of patriotism so absolutely essential to the permanence of 
our Republic.

TLORIDA SOCIETY. 

John C Avery, President. 

FLORIDA Society S. A. R. was organized March 14, 1896, with fifteen members. 
Lieutenant J. H. Bull, of the U. S. Navy, was elected President for the first 
year. He served for two terms, and until he was transferred from the Pen- 
sacola Navy Yard to other duty. Thereafter John C. Avery was elected to succeed 
him and has held the office of President ever since. 

The Florida Society has not a large membership, but has become an institution in 
Pensacola, and may be regarded as permanent Its present membership is thirty- 
five, comprising compatriots residing at various points in the State of Florida. 
Twenty-one of that number, however, live in Pensacola, where the meetings of the 
Society are held and its business transacted. 

Annual banquets are given by the Society on February 22. Prominent citizens 
and officers of the Army and Navy and their wives usually participate in the enjoy- 
ment of those events. 

The Florida Society owes most, if not all, of the success that it has achieved to 
Mr. W. O. H. Shepard, who has been its Secretary ever since its organization. His 
conscientious and intelligent work in performing the duties of his office has been 
and is invaluable, and entitles him to the esteem and gratitude of all his compatriots. 



35 Members. 

Organized March 14, 1896. Annual meeting on the 22nd of February, to com- 
memorate the birthday of Washington.

SOCIETY IN TRANCE. 

THE Society in France was organized September i6, 189^, at Paris, mainly 
through the efforts of Lieutenant Walter J. Sears, U. S. Navy. The Society 
stands well as an organization in France, by reason of having the Ambas- 
sador from the tJnited States, General Horace Porter, as president 

In the past year a committee has been appointed to prepare a list of the French 
soldiers who fought in the Revolutionary War, and valuable assistance has been 
rendered the Society by the French Government, and it is expected that this list 
will soon be published. The Registrar of the Society, Colonel Charles Chaille- 
Long, has the matter in charge, and hopes that this find may prove valuable in 
securing a large membership of the Society in France. 

The past year has been a memorable one for the Society in France. At the 
tomb of Lafayette, on Decoration Day, General Horace Porter, United States Am- 
bassador and President of the Society, presided at a most impressive ceremony. 
On June 4, he dedicated the monument of Rochambeau, at the city of Vendome, a 
large delegation of the Society attending. Nearly all of the members were present 
at the unveiling of the statue of Washington on July 3 and of the Lafayette monu- 
ment on July 4. The most important work of the Society is the present immense 
task of research in the Ministries of War and Marine and in the National Archives 
, for the names of all who served in the French army and fleet during the American 
Revolution. The membership is about thirty, among the later accessions being the 
Count du Chauffault and Count de Suzannet, whose great-grandfathers performed 
illustrious services as officers in high command in the French fleet. The Society in 
France has acknowledged the receipt of its charter from the National Society, 
issued in accordance with the resolution presented by Illinois, and adopted at the 
last annual congress.

HAWAIIAN SOCIETY. 



THE Hawaiian Society was organized June 17, 1896, at Honolulu, and has 
taken an important stand in the social afFairs of the island. The standing 
of its membership is such as to give prestige to anything American, and 
Hawaii is but a link in the spread of the Society in the far East. A temporary 
organization has been effected in Manila through the visit of Ex- President General 
Joseph C. Breckinridge. 

During the past year the chapter has issued a very complete and handsome 
Year Book, and upon the anniversary of the Boston Tea Party a very enjoyable 
celebration was held at the residence of Secretary Atwater in Honolulu. 

A great loss has been sustained by the Society by the death, on May 20, 1900, 
of the Hon. A. F. Judd, Chief Justice of the Sandwich Islands.
